Myth: Nurses just do the“dirty work”
Truth: Nurses do very challenging work requiring analysis of their patients conditions. Nurses provide education on treatments and disease processes to patients and families. Nurses complete and monitor treatments such as medications, to ensure that patients are responding therapeutically to the interventions. Nurses as members of the health care team, provide input into patient care and ensure consistency of care. When nurses are not providing direct care, they are making sure that evidence based practice gets implemented in the patient care area.
